Court of Appeal Uploads Original Copy of Presidential Election Tribunal Judgment

Recall that the Justice Haruna Simon Tsammai-led tribunal ruled in favour of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and affirmed his victory at the 2023 presidential polls.

The tribunal dismissed the petitioners’ petition (Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, PDP and APM), noting that their argument and cases brought before the court lacked merit.

Meanwhile, the petitioners have rejected the tribunal’s ruling and vowed to seek redress at the Supreme Court.

The petitioners, in turn, requested the immediate release of the certified true copies of the tribunal’s judgment.

However, the release of the CTC took more than 48 hours, and the document’s content sparked a fresh controversy.

It was gathered that the watermark header of President Tinubu’s legal team was found across the document.

This development has begun to raise suspicion that the President’s legal team must have written and prepared the verdict.

Meanwhile, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu retained his mandate on Wednesday, September 6, following a favourable presidential election petition court verdict.

The court dismissed several petitions tendered by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

However, AmbaJay obtained the full text of the judgment that gives full details of the decision of the five-member panel led by Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani.
